president said he saw emerging consensus in some areas here. the nra said they were disappointed what is really going on here? >> that's right. that's essentially what we expected, the nra saying they wanted to come and listen to what the administration is talking about, but certainly the administration is looking for some tough guidelines here, to prevent violence in the future. so, some of the things that the vice president says has been emerging from the discussion. he pointed out these are not his recommendations, but what he's hearing from all of these meetings is, at the top of the list, universal background checks. not closing loopholes at sales, but universal background checks, and a ban on high capacity ammunition clips. these are two things that the vice president says has been emerging at the top of the list from the discussions he has been holding. but the nra obviously pushing back on this. clearly disappointed. disappointed, they said, by how these meetings have less to do with protecting the children and more to do with "the agenda, the attack on the second amendment, w
